LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Louisville man is facing several charges after police say he left the scene of an accident and allegedly drove recklessly with a 2-year-old in his car.

It happened shortly after 6:30 Wednesday evening, at the intersection of Taylor Boulevard and Woodlawn Avenue. Police say 20-year-old Howard W. Foley, Jr. was driving a 2000 white Chrysler Voyager when he was involved in an accident at that location.

He then allegedly drove away from the accident -- without stopping -- at "a high rate of speed," driving through yards and almost hitting other vehicles in the area of Southland Boulevard and Morrison Avenue.

Police say Foley's 2-year-old daughter was in the car at the time, and was not in a car seat.

Officers eventually caught up with Foley on Grant Avenue, near the intersection of New Cut Road and Southern Parkway, according to an arrest report. Foley's license had been suspended, according to the arrest report, and he didn't have proof of insurance.

He was arrested and charged with wanton endangerment, leaving the scene of an accident, operating on a suspended or revoked driver's license and failure to maintain required insurance, police say.
